    Not quite what I was expecting, but it takes itself just seriously enough to make the reader do the same. Also: Marvel sure knows how to hire artists lately. Read Full Review

    By itself, this was a great story. I give credit to Way and Talajic for surprising me with an entertaining story that I wasn't expecting. I just hope that this doesn't open the floodgates for more Hit-Monkey stories, as I'd hate to see him go the way of the Marvel Zombies and overstay his welcome. Read Full Review

    As we've previously seen, Hit-Monkey is played completely serious. Way is definitely winking at the audience throughout, but any humor is purely derived from the fact that it's a monkey doing all these things and nothing more. Way's smart writing, Dalibor Talajic's fantastic art, and a surprise character reveal on the last page should make this a fun series going forward. Read Full Review

    The price here seems rather steep for a previously released tale, but for those keen on monkey business, the extra dollar will prove to be negligible. Read Full Review

    There are a lot of ways these series can go. It has the potential to be an edgy bit of surrealism; but it could just easily be a one-note joke that doesn't go beyond what you see in the cover. I'm definitely curious to see what Bullseye's appearance here will mean for the Hit Monkey, although I do find it amusing that he's also showing up in the Shadowland preview in the back. The psycho's keeping busy. Read Full Review
